The Cold War is generally considered to have ended with the dramatic fall of European socialism in the autumn of 1989, leading within a year to the reunification of Germany and within two years to the dissolution of the Soviet Union (USSR). Finland found itself completely free to deepen its economic relations with the West and immediately applied for membership of the European Union (EU). It joined the Union in 1995, and together with most other EU countries adopted the euro as its official currency.
